Video of the Week: Giant hornet, trapped

This video shows a giant hornet trapped under a plastic cup and allows a great close-up view of the insect. Our scientists have identified this as a European Hornet (Vespa crabro), which is found in the United States east of the Mississippi. This is one of the hornets that will be caught in the new WHY Trap for Wasps, Hornets and Yellowjackets.
